I'm looking for somebody to help me break into winter/ice/snow mountaineering or just a climbing partner. My climbing buddies aren't into winter climbing.
My goal this Winter/Spring is to do some easy/moderate snow and ice mountaineering routes around Tahquitz, Suicide, and San Jacinto. I've practiced using crampons and ice axe on non-technical terrain. I would like to move up to some class 4 and easy class 5 stuff. Ultimate goal... ascending San Jacinto via Snow Creek.
As for rock climbing, I'm leading 5.8 trad and can follow/TR 5.10b/c. I've done several multipitch routes on Tahquitz and Suicide. I'm certain I'll be going to JTree a bunch of times this winter so give me a shout if you want to meet up for that.
I live in Idyllwild and have a pretty flexible work schedule if given enough notice. If you come up to Idyllwild for climbing, I can give you a bed and food. I live less than 1/2 mile from the southern end of Ernie Maxwell trail so I've always got access to Tahquitz, even in heavy snow before the roads are plowed.
